Chalk Talking at Joe Walker!
 Fourth graders in Ms. Lowe's math class recently participated in a "Chalk Talk" to visualize their learning about fractions.  Chalk Talks ask learners to silently share their thinking around a concept or question (in this case fractions).  Learners can share their thinking in words or pictures and may ask questions or extend the ideas that their peers express.  After capturing their thinking, the class engages in a reflective discussion about the chalk talk experience and learning.  Great job, Fourth Grade and Ms. Lowe, for using some of our collaborative learning strategies!  Enjoy this and more McGuffey Moments from Joe Walker!

Ms. Litman's students at McGuffey Middle School are so engaged in #GoogleMyMaps!  They identified land regions, pinpointing major cities and finding cool facts about Pennsylvania to collaboratively create a five-layer map!  Thank you Ms. Litman for using technology to transform learning, and Ms. Engler for supporting our teachers in their learning goals!  Enjoy this and more McGuffey Moments from McGuffey Middle School!
